We have always eaten lunch here on our regular shopping trips into York. Yesterday we arrived around 1.15 and the place was maybe 3/4 full already. Still we were seated quickly and given menus. We know if somewhere is busy there might be a wait but usually a drink will pass the time. Unfortunately we waited and waited but neither... More

We visited for lunch on a quiet Tuesday, arriving just after 12pm and opting to sit inside. Whilst the floorspace isn't massive, the owners have successfully managed the seating so as not to feel crowded - and have given a subtly quirky, yet welcoming, feel to the decor. Service is nicely done; warm, welcoming and happy to please. The water... More

We had a lovely meal here as a party of four. The staff were very welcoming and the food was great. I did have food envy however - my starter of smoked salmon on rye, whilst tasty could have done with a creamy accompaniment - the lemon slush puppy while fun didn't quite go and was difficult to eat. My... More

Decided to go for lunch in York and called in to Ate O'clock and so glad we did! Really enjoyed the food and the menu was amazing! Couldn't decide what to have, so we shared the Pulled Pork and one of the delicious burgers. This place is really lovely and the staff could not have been any nicer! So I... More

Down a little alleyway in the heart of York you will find Ate O Clock. Very quirky restaurant with a great atmosphere, serves an early bird menu which is very reasonably priced with specials board included. This isn't the cheapest restaurant to be found but the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff is well worth a... More

Not sure why this place is so highly rated. Yes the food was good but not that exciting. It's very expensive. Wouldn't go again

Make a point to find the little snickle way that holds this great find of a restaurant! Nice, quiet outdoor seating and an inventive menu. I had a hard time deciding what to get! Delicious, all around.

Nice ambience and decor. Lots to choose from, with daily specials in addition to their standard menu, and some dishes are quite innovative. I had the Assiette of Sea & Spice – Tiger Prawn & Mussel Chowder, Thai spiced Crab Cake on wilted Greens, and Cajun spiced Cod on Lyonnaise Potatoes, which all tasted really good.
